SEATTLE (AP) - Ian Kinsler scored the go-ahead run on Danny Farquar's balk in the 10th inning, handing the Texas Rangers a 4-3 win over the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday night.
Kinsler started the winning rally with one-out single against Farquar (0-2) for his fourth hit. Kinsler advanced on Adrian Beltre's single, and then swiped third. After A.J. Pierzynski fouled out to third, home plate umpire C.B. Bucknor called a balk on Farquar with Alex Rios at the plate, allowing Kinsler to come home.
Tanner Scheppers (6-2) wiggled out of a jam in the ninth to get the win and Joe Nathan finished for his 38th save in 40 chances as the AL West-leading Rangers won for the sixth time in eight games.
